My name is Gelen Robinson, I’m from Northwest Indiana, commonly known as “The Region.” I attended Lake Central High School from 2012 to 2014 where I discovered my passion for sports and fitness.
After high school, I was offered a scholarship to play football at Purdue University, graduating in 2018. Following Purdue, I decided to make Indianapolis my home while pursuing my career playing professional sports & personal training!
I began training during my off-seasons while playing professional football. Being a dedicated athlete throughout my life, I always knew that I wanted to work in a gym environment and lead a healthy lifestyle after my sports career ended.
It wasn’t until I completed my internship at IFAST in 2022 that I realized I wanted to share my knowledge and passion for sports performance, strength training, and overall fitness. I initially started as a client at IFAST, preparing for my first professional football season in 2019.
Now, as a coach at IFAST, I have experienced the positive impact that training others has.
When it comes to training, I believe that establishing a strong foundation with your clients is most important. To me, training goes beyond the physical aspects of exercise. It’s about helping your clients stop limiting themselves outside of the gym & building an environment that encourages growth.
Developing a genuine connection with my clients is also a big part of my training philosophy. By understanding their unique goals, strengths, and challenges, I can create a training program that not only enhances physical looks but unlocks their full potential.
I am passionate about educating individuals on the benefits of strength training. It is not exclusive to athletes but can positively impact people of all ages and activity levels. It is through this approach that I hope to make a lasting difference in the lives of all my clients.
With my background in athletics, I specialize in working with athletes of all ages, ranging from aspiring high school athletes to seasoned professionals. Witnessing their progress in the weight room or on the court/field is truly rewarding.
That being said, I enjoy working with clients from all walks of life, regardless of their athletic background. Whether it’s a fitness enthusiast striving to lead a healthier lifestyle or someone looking to regain their functional abilities, I find joy in helping anyone overcome challenges and achieve their goals.
Outside of the gym, I am passionate about sports, traveling, hiking, reading, and hanging out with my 4-year-old daughter!
Athletics have always played a central role in my life, both as a player and a fan. I go to as many games in Indianapolis as possible, but besides being a casual sports fan, I love traveling and being immersed in different cultures. I’m also passionate about reading and like to constantly learn!
